White House aide Tom Bossert pushed out by new national security adviser John Bolton

Bolton officially began at the White House on Monday.

But the president's top spokesperson did quickly add "we'll certainly keep you guys posted".

Schadlow is the third member of the White House national security staff to depart following John Bolton's appointment as national security adviser.

Her resignation came just a day after another senior official, Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert, stepped down from his post. Anton, formerly associated with Hillsdale College and the Claremont Institute, is highly regarded by the conservative movement nationwide.

Schadlow was promoted to deputy national security adviser for strategy in January following the departure of Dina Powell, a former NSC official and Goldman Sachs executive, and was a key author of the president's National Security Strategy document, which laid out Trump's national security goals and approach.

Nadia Schadlow tendered her resignation in a letter Tuesday.

So far reports are that he asked for the resignations of H.R. McMaster's team.

Her resignation is likely to evoke some concern in foreign policy circles in Washington, where Schadlow has been viewed as one of the rare, reliable steady hands guiding foreign policy in the Trump White House.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said the administration thanks Schadlow for "her service and leadership". Though they now share staff, the NSC and HSC conduct their own meetings and handle their own policy issues.

Bossert also advised Trump on cybersecurity issues.

Bolton has previously served in the administrations of presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush, and served as a Bush lawyer during the 2000 Florida recount.
